We would love to host a tour of our farm for those interested in learning how to start a small farm, keep honeybees, and raise alpacas/sheep for fiber. Specifically, we will share our expertise on starting and running a small diversified, ecologically friendly farm. Our areas of speciality include: beekeeping, wool and yarn, tree grafting, fruit orchard management, and u-pick and community-shared agriculture. We're also expert succulent growers.
The tour will be offered on Saturday morning from 10-12pm and will feature a honey tasting from our own award winning honeybee hives and a tour of the sheep and alpacas, honeybee hives, succulent greenhouse, vegetable and flower beds, and blueberry fields. Our honey has won the 'Good Food' awards three times in the last five years for the best honey in the United States.
We begin with a visit to our honeybee hives and succulent greenhouse, before returning to the barn for a honey tasting. After sampling our honey and answering questions about beekeeping, we will visit the alpacas and sheep. We will share about making yarn from wool fibers and natural dye. Finally, we will tour the vegetable beds and chicken coops, and then finish in the blueberry fields.
We will have lots of time for FAQs about any part of our farm including about keeping bees or animals, yarn and fiber, succulents and fruit trees, and building on barren land.
